Oh, damn you, London theatre!


It’s all member of the cast’ fault if I noticed almost last minute the musical The White Feather and, reading the synopsys, I had to book immediately!

I’ve booked for this musical on Friday 16 October night, on their second last day of performances.

The White Feather 16 ott

So now my list of plays to see in London is: Teddy Ferrara (at least twice), The White Feather, The Bright And Bold Design plus one or two I will choose from the NTArchive.

I greatly appreciate the Union Theatre releases E-tickets, so I got it already! More theatres should do that!

The White Feather is a musical on the Great War, gender inequality and refers to homosexuality (that it seems was not unusual between WWI soldiers) – official site

<<This September, Arion Productions presents the world premiere of new British musical The White Feather at the Union Theatre.  It tells the story of Georgina Briggs whose brother was one of over 300 allied soldiers executed for cowardice during the First World War.  She won’t accept the shame and she won’t let it lie.  But as she fights for justice a shocking discovery awaits her.  

Memorials to the soldiers who fought and died in the Great War grace almost every town and village but 306 names are conspicuous by their absence – the men who were executed by their own side. Some were deserters and others were condemned for putting down their weapons in the course of battle but many were suffering from what we know now as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

The White Feather tells the story of one soldier and his sister’s lifelong fight for a posthumous pardon. It also encounters the issues of homosexuality and gender inequality at the turn of the century. With powerful songs and a storyline with a twist, this production has a sharp emotional intensity generated by words and music.>>
